Thanks for the post. Your link to the article about spelling with your hands reminded me of a related conversation I recently had with a student.

She has a friend who, like me, uses the Dvorak keyboard layout on his own computer but has to use QWERTY on his smartphone. When he has to use a full-size QWERTY keyboard, she said, he types using just his thumbs.
